HOUSTON, TEXAS, May 28, 2014 -- Headworks International, Inc., a global provider of wastewater treatment processes and equipment, has announced the sale of its Cleansea® advanced wastewater treatment technology to Evac Oy for the marine business.

The transaction will allow Headworks to concentrate on its core municipal and industrial wastewater treatment markets. Further, by signing the business sale and license agreements with Headworks, Evac expands in the global marine advanced wastewater treatment business market.

Headworks' CleanSea technology is designed to treat a variety of marine wastewater streams, including grey water from accommodation, galley, decanter reject water, and laundry sources, as well as black water.

According to industry estimates, the advanced wastewater treatment market will continue to grow in coming years.
